And so the annual whinge-fest begins

I think it has got to the point where Waitaingi is a chore and burdensome to most New Zealanders to even bother thinking about.

The annual Harawira clan fighting with the Crown is tiresome, and in all these years no one in Ngapuhi has told this family of ratbags to sling their hooks.

Yet again they are kicking up a stink…time to end Waitangi celebrations, rename the holiday and stop pandering to these scoundrels.

The NZ Herald reports on the Harawira ferals:

There were heated exchanges and jostling when a veteran Maori protester tried to block the Governor-General from entering the whare at Te Tii Marae at Waitangi.

Governor-General Lieutenant General Sir Jerry Mateparae and his wife had been welcomed on to the marae this morning, accompanied by Titewhai Harawira, and tried to enter the whare when her daughter – veteran Maori protester Hinewhare Harawira and sister of Mana MP Hone Harawira – tried to stop him from going in.

Ms Harawira was denied entry into the whare but could be heard yelling at Sir Jerry.

She was removed from the marae and it is unclear what she was protesting about. ?

Waitangi elder Kingi Taurua said it would have been better Ms Harawira and any other protesters to address sir Jerry face to face rather than shouting at him.

“The Governor-General needs to know and to hear what they are saying,” he said.

“By doing that he closed his ears to their concerns so for me.. it would really have been better for the protesters to come inside approach the Governor-General and then they can hear what he has to say.”

Mr Taurua said there was nothing much they could do about protesters voicing their concerns at the marae.

He said Ms Harawira had been trespassed from the marae in the past.

“There must be a written warning and this warning must be three or four times before the police act but they can’t act on the marae.”

“So it’s left to us and it’s very, very difficult for us to try and control that kind of behaviour.”

Prime Minister John Key condemned the actions of those responsible.

Helen Clark was right when she refused to attend with those feral ratbags hanging around.
